ID attorney represented murder victim’s parent before Kohberger

Kootenai County defense attorney Anne Taylor may have been related to at least one member of the victim’s family prior to the murder.


According to Idaho court filings, Anne Taylor, Public Defender of Kootenai County, represented a person with the same name as the parent of one of the murder victims, beginning November 21, 2022.

This representation lasts until January 5, 2023. On this date, Taylor signed the ‘substitute attorney’ and referred the case to another attorney. This is just a day after Bryan Kohberger was transported from Pennsylvania to Idaho.

KREM2 is choosing not to share details of charges or names of individuals at this time.

Former criminal defense attorney, Mo Hamoudi, said conflicts of interest can be common in the law.

“There is nothing evil or wrong with learning about a conflict,” explains Hamoudi. It always happens. In any public defender’s office, there is always a potential conflict of interest because the public defender’s office represents a large number of members of society who cannot afford a lawyer.”

When this happens, he said, lawyers have an obligation to independently resolve potential conflicts.

The court then makes its own decision on the conflict.

“What needs to be determined is what the problem is and what the representation is, so the cases have to be analyzed, the facts need to be analyzed and then a decision has to be made,” says Hamoudi.

However, whether it affects the court process depends on the type of conflict.

“The so-called concurrent conflict of interest, which means concurrent, is where there is a substantial risk that representing one or more clients will be substantially limited by the attorney’s liability to other customers, old customers or third parties. people,” said Hamoudi. “And concurrent conflicts of interest may arise from the attorney’s liability to the former client.”

Hamoudi said this means attorneys cannot use information related to previous representations to the detriment of a former client.

He said conflicts of interest can sometimes lead to a judge appointing a different attorney. OneAt this point, he said it was too early to say whether there would be any effect on the Moscow case.

KREM 2 has continued to contact the Kootenai County public attorney’s office for comment but may not receive a response due to the gag order.
